Peugeot Boxer & e-Boxer in Castleford West Yorkshire
Built for the biggest jobs, the Peugeot Boxer offers 8-17m3 of load space with four body lengths and three roof heights. The new, Euro 6.3 compliant 2.2 BlueHDi engine kicks out 120PS/310Nm or 140PS/340Nm of torque with a 90-litre fuel tank. Or why not go 100% electric? The e-Boxer offers 11.5-15m3 of load space and is offered with a 37kWh, 73 mile battery or a 75kWh, 154 mile battery. Charging from 0-80% at 50kW takes an hour, and you can enter congestion charge and clean air zones for free.
The only trim availible is the Professional Premium +. This model has several handy extras, including a 5” touchscreen with integrated sat nav, rear parking sensors, and air conditioning. Front electric windows, remote central locking, DAB radio, Bluetooth and Hill Start Assist. Diesel models meet Euro 6.3 emissions standards, but it’s electric versions that are the cleanest and cheapest to run, saving you up to two thirds on running costs.
